A few weeks ago I wrote this post about cleaning up the workshop area downstairs. One of the photos showed the old kitchen cupboards which we had been using as storage in this area for the last 7 years. We decided that it was time for them to go as the chipboard was all breaking up and we had eliminated enough stuff to longer require them as storage.
GMan cut the shelving into smaller pieces and broke down the cupboard shells and drawers. We only have a half size (120 litre) wheelie bin so we filled it with the cut pieces each week for 4 weeks.
Now it is completely gone.
The alternative was to pack it into the ute, drive 20kms to the nearest rubbish dump and pay about $15 to dump it. The end result is the same – it goes to landfill, which is not ideal but there is really no alternative for this sort of thing. However, we managed it at zero cost to us because we chose to take our time and dispose of it bit by bit.
